World Team USA Women’s Boot Camp

Add these exercises to your routine for even quicker results

Fitness boot camps never go out of style for a good reason: The military-inspired workouts burn serious calories. “Built on three fundamentals of training—cardio, strength, and agility—boot-camp workouts require little more than your body weight to get results,” says Christopher Mohr, Ph.D., R.D., of Mohr Results Adventure Boot Camp for Women in Louisville, Kentucky. “They’re more intense than any fitness class and more fun than traditional gym workouts.”

Are you ready to be stronger?  We can make that happen for you at World Team USA, where we focus on both body and mind.

TJ Arcangel Birthday Celebration

As a gym and as a family, we want to celebrate TJ Arcangel his 29th birthday. However, the hard work never stops. TJ will spend his birthday training at the World Team USA, celebrating it with his second family. “A fight is a fight, and I must prepare for it”, some of the words of the champion that always continue to encourage us all to push ourselves everyday. As students, we are all very grateful and appreciative for the training, and teaching TJ gives us.

Katie Melanie lam Katie Melanie lam

“The mindset of a champion is to up-bring others”. TJ has been at World Team USA since he was a teenager, growing up and being one of the instructors for the pee wee classes. Today, he continues to teach, and encourage the art of Muay Thai to all people. As a family, we all continue to work hard together.

TJ has had many challenges in his Muay Thai career. However, he has never given up on some of the hardest opponents he has faced. “One of my most challenging, and exciting fight, was my last amateur… As many times as I had knocked the guy down, no matter what he continued to get back up.” Keep fighting, keep pushing.


World Team USA thanks TJ Arcangel for sharing his knowledge to all students that come in. TJ is not only a coach, but a great friend to all who he teaches. An amazing day to be in the gym, and celebrate one of our very own coaches, champion, and friends birthday. Thank you TJ Arcangel.

Miss Asian Global Pageant 2017 Result

Muay Thai is not only about fighting.  It goes much further and deeper than just that.  In the last few years, several women competing in the Miss Asian Global Pageant have put the “stigma” of Muay Thai being just about fighting, to rest.  If you were to speak to any one of these women, they would tell you that because of the training they went through at World Team USA, their self confidence is stronger, they are more focused,  and fit.   This year 2017, World Team USA sponsored 3 pageant ladies.  Of the 3 ladies, not only did they walk away with crowns, they also developed life long fitness skills that only you can find in the art of Muay Thai.
